The JPS Torah Commentary series guides readers through the words and ideas of the Torah. Each volume is the work of a scholar who stands at the pinnacle of his field.
Every page contains the complete traditional Hebrew text, with cantillation notes, the JPS translation of the Holy Scriptures, aliyot breaks, Masoretic notes, and commentary by a distinguished Hebrew Bible scholar, integrating classical and modern sources.
Each volume also contains supplementary essays that elaborate upon key words and themes, a glossary of commentators and sources, extensive bibliographic notes, and maps.
For this volume, I am grateful to this blog’s wonderful readers and the excellent folks at the Westminster Bookstore. It looks like the Genesis volume is currently out of stock, but for the other JPS Torah Commentary volumes at the Westminster Bookstore, please see here.
